venus side chair

Design Konstantin Grcic, 2006
Molded wood, veneer, rubber grip
Made in Germany by Classicon

As far as Konstantin Grcic was concerned, the thought of designing the 1001st tame chair with four legs was just too boring. Instead he created a new type of chair, a highly sculptural and intelligent combination of two wooden shells. ?"Venus" is free of ballast in every respect: it is simple, bright wood, with smooth, clear contours and is astonishingly lightweight. An exciting new chapter in the long history of sitting - and one of the most aesthetic options for giving that special touch to a conference room or dining room.

Konstantin Grcic was born in Munich, Germany in 1965. After training as a cabinet maker at Parnham College in England he studied design at the Royal College of Art in London from 1988-1990. Konstantin Grcic creates industrial products widely described as pared down, simple, minimalist. What sets him apart from the minimalism in fashionable currency today is that he defines function in human terms, combining maximum formal strictness with considerable mental acuity and humor.

Venus is molded wood with real wood veneer available in walnut or black varnished. Grip and base profile in rubber.

Konstantin Grcic

Konstantin Grcic (b. 1965, Munich) trained as a cabinet maker at Parnham College in England and studied design at the Royal college of Art in London from 1988 to 1990. He then founded the KGID office (Konstantin Grcic Industrial Design) in 1991, which led to commissions from leading firms in furniture, design, and architecture. Grcic creates industrial products widely described as pared down, simple, essential, or minimalist. His take on minimalism differs from the current fashion in its function in human terms, combining maximum formal strictness with considerable mental acuity and humor.
The German company ClassiCon began by making the works of Eileen Gray available for sale. Gray was a contemporary of Marcel Breuer and Mies van der Rohe who created furniture from chrome, tubular steel, and glass. She is known for avant-garde classics such as the “Monte Carlo” sofa and the “E1027” adjustable table. ClassiCon also worked early on with designer Eckart Muthesius, and continues to find young designers whose work meets their high standard of quality, such as Konstantin Grcic, to foster collaboration while introducing their work to the marketplace. While maintaining the early Modern classics that gave them their start, ClassiCon also believes in creating the classics of tomorrow.
